Reduce, Reuse and Recycle: If the principle of 'Reduce, Reuse and Recycle' is followed on a regular basis, it can help to reduce global warming to a great extent. First, we should make sure that we are not contributing towards the waste but making efforts to reduce waste. Second, we should encourage the reusing of things rather than throwing them away. Last, recycling waste is important.  Things like paper, plastics and newspapers can be recycled and reused.

Public transport and car pooling: Too many vehicles lead to emission of large amounts of carbon dioxide and other harmful gases. So, instead of using personal cars, people can indulge in car pooling or car sharing. This way, we can reduce the consumption of fuel as well as the level of pollution.

Avoid deforestation: Planting trees is important; similarly, avoiding deforestation is also important. When we plant a tree, it takes years to grow; however, cutting a tree hardly takes any time.
